What's the Matter With Kansas Chicago Premiere at Gene Siskel Film Center 9/18

 Dug spent years traveling to Kansas repeatedly with film making team, Joe Winston and Laura Cohen, to complete the documentary,  "What's the Matter with Kansas?"   Here's a prior blog post about the shoot.  I saw an advanced screening last year and it was excellent.

Now, everyone has a chance to check it out September 18th-24th at The Gene Siskel Film Center.

Here's what Laura and Joe have to say:
